Arkansas Monarch and Pollinator Conservation Plan
Draft and Public Comment
The Arkansas Monarch Conservation Partnership has developed the first draft of the Arkansas Monarch and Pollinator Conservation Plan. This plan represents a multi-level approach for the state of Arkansas that provides opportunities for individuals, organizations, and government to come together in support of the conservation and protection for monarch butterflies, pollinators, and their habitats.
The focus areas for the development of this plan were to:
- set goals for monarch and pollinator habitat efforts in the state, including strengthening existing work, identifying gaps, and prioritizing actions,
- create a holistic, coordinated statewide strategy for supporting monarchs and pollinators,
- develop a collaborative effort to attract resources needed to the state’s monarch population while boosting populations of all pollinator species, and
- identify opportunities to integrate our efforts with other regional and national initiatives.
We are currently in the “Public Review and Comment” phase of the plan development and invite any and all comments on the plan. A link to a standardized comment form is available online. Comments can also be submitted via email: email@example.com.
